Okemo U14 Change to Weekend Training Plan 1/5 & 1/6 and List of athletes Participating in MVC Races
Hello Okemo U14 Families,
Just found out that our event on Sunday will be a single pole dual Slalom, so our training has changed to reflect that. Basically regular Slalom just two courses mirrored next to each other.
Saturday 1/5: 8:15 am meet at the yurt. 8:15-11:30 We will work on the following skills quest drills, which will also be contested at the competition at Killington on Sunday. We will also have Single Pole Dual Slalom Gates (not panel) that day.
Freeski pole with pole usage: http://videos.ussa.org/coetv/detail/videos/recent-videos/video/5582457552001/phase-2_free-skiing-with-pole-usage?autoStart=trueFreeski lane change: http://videos.ussa.org/coetv/detail/video/5582480006001/phase-3_free-skiing-w-lane-change?autoStart=true&q=free%20Afternoon directed free ski will go 12:30-1:30.
Sunday 1/6: Skills Quest and Single Pole Slalom Race at Killington. This event does not count toward standings for qualification to VT State Championships. Make sure to sign up on race admin as soon as possible, so Killington can organize groups for this event (https://adminskiracing.com/node/189218). Registration closes on 1/5 at 12:03pm. We will have no organized training for those not at Killington. See attached schedule HERE
Click HERE to find a list of athletes that have confirmed as competing this season. If for some reason your son or daughter does not have a highlighted yellow mark next to their name on this list please let me know. This list is used for a quick reference of all the Mid Vermont Council Racer. It is also used to determine our quota for States, the more athletes we have in MVC the more spots we will get for State Championships!
Thank you and enjoy the rest of the week!
